I got LOTL for Christmas and I still haven't had a chance to play it. It's still all wrapped up in it's original packaging. I don't even want to open it now, I'm so disgusted by this. I think I'd rather go buy Oblivion and play that instead.

Dear Friends (mods and family alike) from GB......

How's everyone doing? Great I hope! I'm holding down the fort here on the northshore of New Orleans, LA.
I got an email from a "boomer" who keeps in contact with me and she mentioned that my copy of 'Limbo' might be a collector's item in the future. Since buying the game I have yet to play it or even look at it really. I have not had time to play in ages but I have kept up buying games and keeping up with what's out (for when I do get a chance) and since I also have not been on GB for ages and do not have a clue as to what she is referring, could someone please enlighten me! I tried a 'search' on GB Discussion Forum, but did not see anything. What's the "skinny", or the "411" (very out of date phrases)!
Any info whould be helpful. Thank you

Hugs... Hank and Syrahound!!!

I for one didn't buy the game and stated so on the previous thread that had so many ambiguous remarks as well as negative remarks against our own by the so-called developers.
"A collectors item", "you have to play the game", oh please; it's "damaged goods" and should be treated as such.

Hi Darleen - I understand your points and if I had played the game before hearing this news, that would be that. But since I haven't, I think I'll either not play it at all or put it at the back of the queue and give it some further thought. I know it's not going to make a difference to anyone else but me at this point, but it just feels wrong to me, somehow. It might not be a totally logical response but we humans are not the most logical of creatures. smile

Dear Friends of GB..(old and new alike).....

Now I have a moral delimna!! I'm not kidding here! Truly I have a moral delimna!
Let me explain! I have not played any of the games that were mentioned here on this post. So, to me, the game will be new.... but, and this is a big but, at what point do I say "No, I do not condone what you have done whether it be somone saying "Oh Gee, (slap forhead), how could I ever have missed that". I don't think it's right to esentually say "Oh heckers, what has that got to do with me. I have a game that may be worth money in the future."
Then on the other hand, at what point do I find Tri-Synergy culpable for using work from other games? Should I really be asking for my money back on the game if they truly did not know the scope of the similarities?
Lastly... maybe I'm taking this to the extreme. But I have to wonder, what would any other game develper do if they played a game or purchased a game and then found out that the game they had sweat blood and tears over, each and every scene and nuamce, could be found in a small and maybe not so small way in another game (at least enough for others to notice). Thinking... "I gave my intelectual property to a major corporation, but little did I think that they would allow another to produce a game that I put blood and tears into....that not only mirored my game to the point that others noticed but helped those people reach an easy ends to a difficult prolem"
Many of you say that 'Limbo' had many scenes that looked like several other games...(I won't know the extent of the plagerism {right word? or not?} whether it is seems to be purposefully done or not! Is plagerism the most appopriate word?
A mistake is a mistake (One maybe two could be acceptable if they are not very blatent or close to the original(s) (again something I won't have a clue about).
I am not trying to be imflamatory or try to get others worked up in a revolt of some sort.... I am trying to guage what others know from playing the other games and seeing for themselves and figure out if it's the just and the right thing to do (for me) to ask for my money back! I can only guess how hard others work at making the "magic" happen... (although one man whose work I do know, love and respect comes to mind... Jonathan Blokes) and each of his are nothing like one another, other than the subject matter of the supernatural.

Which brings me to another question... ARE they giving money back based on this "faux-pax"??
Thanks for any input into these question I have been pondering upon reading the post.
Your with hugs and prayers...
Hank and Syra

Hi Hanksdog,
Since you bought the game in good faith not knowing anything about all of this controversy, why not relax and just play the game? None of this is your fault so why agonize over it?
What I keep wondering about is that maybe the original screens were in the "public domain" (not copyrighted) and free to anyone who wanted to use them. There are several sites around to help beginners with their games.
